I know it is strange to talk about another book in a review but I can’t help compare my two latest reads.
I finished another book Thursday that took me almost three weeks to read because the storyline (even though it was good) was lost in the use of constant profanity. I would have to put it down because I was so tired of the use of “gds” and the “f” word.
The Fifth Avenue Story Society was a breath of fresh air! It was well written, not one word of profanity and to my delight a Christian storyline but you don’t find that out until about three-fourths of the way through when one of the main characters explains why she left her real life prince at the altar. I finished it in three days because I couldn’t put it down. Rachel Hauck does a great job with character development. A cosmetic heiress, a literature professor, a burger restaurant executive assistant, a building superintendent, and an Uber driver are a mixed-matched group who would never have met without a strange invitation to attend a meeting of the Fifth Avenue Story Society. Why were they chosen? Was it kismet, fate, divine intervention? These are five people that you want to know; people you want to be friends with; people you want to share your life struggles with. I laughed. I cried. I got mad. I was happy for the way the characters’ lives turned out. It is definitely a feel good story. I strongly encourage you to read The Fifth Avenue Story Society. You won’t be disappointed!
